nginx:wsus_proxy

nginx 'WSUS config' I use at work to tunnel WSUS updates from one country to another via. low bandwidth connections (I use “wondershaper” to limit the total bandwidth of the server, as other services such as squid proxy is running too). The original page is found at the nginx wiki: WSUSProxy

You need to correct “DAZCACHE”, “YOUR.WSUS.SERVER” and “192.168.222.0/24” to make this work.
